The Old and Lovely Woods

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

July marks my best friend's twenty-third birthday. That's her below. She's almost a year younger than me but infinitely wiser. I made the short road trip up to celebrate with her this year. Over the weekend we fell into that happy combination of seriousness and silliness that all great friendships share.

Our adventures lead us out into the beautiful woods of Huntsville State Park. We drove through winding roads, walked almost three miles in 90 degree heat, and took pictures of everything that would stay still long enough to be captured. Then we collapsed back into the car, tired, sweaty, and especially grateful for the miracle of air conditioning.

Sometimes one day of adventuring is all you need to set your soul right.
